Build relationships, attract leads & get more referrals by networking regularly.
Here are the events that I highly recommend. I hope to see you soon!
COME TO OUR WOMEN’S NETWORKING GROUP – It’s FREE!
Are you looking to build relationships with the amazing business women you know plus to get to know some fresh connections? Then we invite you to join us on the 2nd Friday of each month!!
Our group is friendly, professional, supportive and we love to talk. Attendees are business professionals & entrepreneurs who are looking to build quality relationships, not sales pitches.
Everyone gets the chance to introduce themselves to the group. We also have time to do more than the standard 30-second introduction to develop deeper connections. We encourage you to meet 1-on-1, participate in our Facebook group and invite guests. Our goal is to help each other grow our businesses & have fun! Bring your lunch (optional).
WOMEN ONLY PLEASE (except if a member know a really great guy who specifically helps women grow their businesses – if so, contact me).
NOTE: I am the co-organizer of BOW.
JOIN MY MEETUP GROUPS – It’s FREE!
High quality networking events in the Baltimore Metro Area for women. The calendar includes a variety of events (both free & paid).
Whether you are new to networking or a seasoned pro, you know that finding quality connections takes time. You probably steer away from events that are overly crowded or involve business cards being shoved at you.
My goal is to share the best events with other women in the area so we can help each other to grow our businesses. Featured events are selected if they provide an opportunity for women to gather together to build relationships, expand their networks and provide referrals. You’ll have time to talk with each other beyond just an elevator pitch. You’ll probably laugh.
YOU WILL ACTUALLY ENJOY NETWORKING!!! 🙂
The variety of choices on the calendar will also allow you to find some new connections or mix it up when you can. Many won’t require membership or attendance every month. Membership groups allow guests to try it out at least once.
NOTE: I am the organizer of this Meetup group which promotes the event I co-organize (BOW)
& other events that I love to attend. See details about each event for more info.
You’ll find 2 types of Meetup events – business education & networking to start & grow your business. In addition to the official Meetups, the calendar has a curated list of other events in the area.
We post recommended events from area organizations on various business topics. These events and seminars will be led by members or experts with expertise in specific areas such as social networking or writing a business plan. There will be reasonable charges for the seminars (paid to the organizer of the event directly).
This group provides a resource for those who are self employed, run their own business or are starting a business. Our emphasis is on sharing our strengths and successes with each other so we can all grow both professionally and personally. Meetups are designed to help us expand our networks, overcome our challenges and bring our businesses to the next level.

& workshops organized by a nonprofit I recommend. See details about each event for more info.
WHY I LOVE MEETUP.COM!
MEETUP IS A CONNECTION TOOL!
It IS a social network. Combining this with real life events will super charge your connections (both personally & professionally). It’s connected me with my last full-time job, clients for my business, friends and even a husband. I join and participate in groups with like-minded people and then continue to build relationships in real life.
USE YOUR PROFILE TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS!
I encourage you to use Meetup profiles to share your photo, bio & more, so our members can learn about each other beyond the business cards and short introductions you may hear at events. It also is a very easy way to find a person if you lost their contact info!
COME TO EVENTS!
Don’t let the number of RSVPs here determine if you are coming! We promote the events in multiple places. Many groups have been around for years, with regular attendance. My RSVP is a very low estimate of the number of attendees.
SHARE THE GROUPS WITH OTHERS!
Join, participate & share these groups to help us all grow our connections. If you know other great women in the area, please share this group with them! The more members we have, the better for all of us.
I look forward to connecting with you! If you have any questions or ideas, please let me know.
I look forward to connecting with you!
